ENG: Old Jewish cemetery had been under the old Christian cemetery near the church of St. Philip and James. It was founded in 1634, has been extended several times and was used by 1893. During the occupation the Nazis liquidated the cemetery, tombstones were destroyed. After the war were both historic cemeteries - Christian and Jewish - turned to park. There are 2 memorials to the victims of the Holocaust (the elder of the year 1955, new from 2002) and only one fragment of the tomb slab in the lower part of the cemetery.
